Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Craig Butler
A surprisingly sweet little film from director Clint Eastwood, Breezy is a bit too predictable and "cutesy," but still quite enjoyable. Jo Heims' screenplay has dated quite a bit; it was faux hip at the time and now frequently comes across as annoying, especially in its take on the title character. She's intended to be a free spirit, but Heims' dialogue is too forced. Fortunately, Kay Lenz's fine performance paves over many of the flaws in the writing, and her own personal charm helps to make the character seem more real than she actually is. Even better is William Holden, creating a shy, lonely man too bound by convention (and too insecure in himself) to go against the grain, even when it's in his own best interest. The two stars have an unusual and appealing chemistry, which also covers over some of the triter aspects of the writing, and Eastwood directs with sensitivity and style. Breezy is no classic, but it's pleasant and moving, the kind of film that leaves the viewer with a small, warm glow.

Breezy is 'Harold & Maude', except for the dire ending. What a beautiful 'coming-of-age' film for both the middle-aged man and the young hippie girl. Lesson learned: if you find true love, Go For It!. This film is precious, moving, and undeniably unforgettable. The ending is---well, you'll just have to watch.

I saw this movie on the silver screen when it first came out in 1972....I was around the same age as Kay Lenz back then....A year ago I purchased this DVD....The movie brought back so many pleasant memories of how life was back in the early 70s, especially how we all dressed back then....This movie truly is a "fairy-tale" come true....The chemistry between Kay Lenz and William Holden is truly unbelievable....I only wish movies today were as delightful as this movie was back then.....
